In brief: Cardiac ischemia

I assume you just had cardiac testing.
The proceadures a nuclear medicine test. It reveals area of ischemia inadequate blood flow to inferior wall of heart. As partially reversible means probably a portion is heart attack. Remainder of area in jeopardy of injury but with agressive treatment strategy could be salvaged.
